This is the other BR painting that hasn’t been painted once in 2021 (the other one was Splashes of autumn). Here is my version.
I didn’t want to do the 2 full ovals, so I made “half” ones on each side. I thought it would look good to have the empty space in neutral gray. Now that the painting is done, it looks like a giant tree in the middle since it doesn’t contrast that much. Leaving it white would have looked better.
My question to you guys… should I put a white outline on the edge of my ovals to define them better and have the birch trees not look like a giant tree?
I think it looks good! I immediately saw it as a border, not a tree.
Me to Alexandria. It’s great Nancy!
Thank you so much Brian and Alexandria! I really appreciate your input! 😊
Thank you much Sandy!
That water is such a pleasant green.
I don't think the grey is a bad idea, it just got so covered up that it takes a second for your mind to figure out that there's an abstract shape in the midground.
Thanks Nick! I actually decided to add a white outline to define the edges of the half ovals. Check the picture I just added below this one. Tell me what you think.
That looks great too Nancy!
Love your interpretation of this one, and of course the Spanish moss!
Thank you Brian! I agree the painting looks good either way.
Thank you so much Jessie! I saw you live in Central FL. Me too. We have Spanish moss everywhere. I thought it could work in this painting. Also, you are. CRI?!!! That’s so amazing. Do you teach?
I am a CRI! I mostly do online stuff. I stream on Twitch and upload those streams to YouTube both under the name LadyGalaga
I just started following you on both. I am really excited about this!
thank you so much!
